    Parents ... how’d it go? What did you think of Matriculation Day? Of Lexington? Of VMI? My own SA experience was profound and luminal to me ... In my own experience with my DS, I found the “call down” for Rats to report to the Company guidon, and the “march up” to Barracks to be one of the...

    Peanut Allergy Oral Challenge?

    Mom — so sorry to hear this. Your DS might consider asking his NROTC cadre if there is way to appeal the NROTC’s medical waiver authority’s decision. If there is, good. If not, and if your DS could see himself serving in the Army, he might next check with the AROTC cadre at his school to see...

    Ask Me Anything: Rat at Virginia Military Institute

    I don't think so ... I seem to recall a story here on the Forum where a family was returning their USMA Plebe to West Point and he was in Grey Blouse ... and they were in a restaurant in Virginia ... and the waitress asked if the young man was a VMI Cadet ... Of course the proud parents said no...

    DODMERB Waiver DQ, want to apply for Air Nation Guard after College

    As Capt MJ said, the key here is the waiver. DoDMERB just applies its reg and decides qualified or DQ ... Same for everybody ... The medical waiver authorities decide whether to grant the waiver. AF seems to be the most conservative in their rulings. Army seems to be very reasonable. Navy is...
